  • New Developments in Military Pension Division

Attorneys Susan Butler, Roberta Henault and Molly Garrett recently attended a program hosted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers regarding New Developments in Military Pension Division presented by Col. Mark E. Sullivan (Retired).

The program explored military pension division guidelines from past, present and future.

Topics discussed included the recent changes to how military pensions are divided as part of a divorce due to the new amendments to the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (i.e. ‘Frozen Benefit Rule’), the new prohibition against Courts from ordering indemnification when the retiree’s election of VA disability compensation cuts the pension share of the former spouse and the upcoming change due to the creation of the new Blended Retirement System, effective on January 1, 2018, and how that will impact divorce cases involving a spouse or a still-serving military member with less than 12 years of creditable service. To learn more about these very important changes could impact your assets and divorce, please visit our military page.
